Public Relations Workshop

05:30 PM @ Public Relations Workshop in Springfield, MA
Wednesday, January 30, 2019

Have you considered what your startup "story" is?  While it may seem like a simple question for some, there are many factors for innovators of all levels to consider. How much information is "too much information?" How do you tailor your messages to appropriate audiences? How can perfecting your "story" help to secure funding and the attention of major healthcare leaders? Where do you go and what influencers and journalists do you want to tell you "story?" What value do mainstream journalists versus bloggers versus social media users present in the modern day?
These are just a few of the questions that innovators and startup organizations should be considering on a constant basis, as the successful execution of public relations and messaging can make a major difference in who and how often your offering is seen in critical spaces.
At this workshop, Brendan will address overarching themes and ideas to consider before meeting individually with attendees for 10 minute brainstorming sessions. 
Seats are limited so RSVP today!   FREE!
